Valerie Blaine, Nature Programs Manager demonstrates how to tap a tree Saturday during Maple Sugaring Days at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve in St. Charles. Forest Preserve District of Kane County naturalists demonstrated how to tap a maple tree, and offered everyone the opportunity to try their hand at drilling and setting their own tap. People were able to explore the art, science and folklore of the "sugar bush" or maple grove, from early Native American times to the modern sugaring industry. They also simmered sap over an open fire and watched as it thickens to syrup. Everyone was invited on a "Sugarin' Time" hike to learn how to distinguish maples from other species of hardwood trees.

Ray Herrick, of Algonquin says that he is a fighter and will not just sit down and take what Parkinson's gives him. Rock Steady Boxing in Elgin is dedicated to the fight against Parkinson's. RSB Chicago became the first affiliate in Illinois and serves approximately 111 participants in its two facilities. Medical studies support that rigorous exercise, emphasizing gross motor movement, balance, core strength, and rhythm can favorably impact range of motion, flexibility, posture, gait, and activities of daily living. RSB does just that. It is a noncontact, boxing inspired fitness program moving the body in all planes of motion. This program works to lessen symptoms and improve quality of life for all levels of Parkinson's. Each session challenges the participants to continuously progress and have fun at the same time. Beyond the exercise happening in the room, anyone visiting a RSB gym will witness the power of the friendship and camaraderie of the participants. It is, indeed, a support group.

Lauren Bularzik, PT, DPT, left, and Erica Pickering, tech., help Christopher Burks of Maywood use a robotic exoskeleton as part of therapy at Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital, part of Northwestern Medicine. It's helping patients with lower-extremity weakness or paralysis greatly increase the number of steps they can safety take, which accelerates recovery. Patients at Marianjoy have taken over 660,000 steps in the EksoGT, contributing to a milestone of 100 million steps taken worldwide. For patients like Kray, the EksoGT helps correct step patterns, weight shifting and balance. Kray, who was an avid runner before suffering a devastating hemorrhagic stroke, says walking in the Ekso reminds her of the wonderful feeling she used to get running, and it motivates her to keep on working to regain her mobility. EksoGT is a battery-powered frame that enables individuals with lower-extremity weakness or paralysis to stand and walk. It is used as part of a physical therapy plan to support the relearning of correct step patterns, weight shifting, and balance.
